Mamonia Zone is also referred to in the geological bibliography
as the Mamonia Complex. The
name is derived from the village of Mamonia in Paphos, where
classic outcrops of the Zone occur.
It consists of a series of volcanic, sedimentary and, in
smaller proportions, metamorphic rocks of Middle Triassic to
Upper Cretaceous age (230–75 Ma ago). It includes: (a) volcanic (lavas) and sedimentary rocks (recrystallised
limestones) of the Dhiarizos Group; (b) pelagic
sedimentary rocks (limestones, mudstones and quartzitic
sandstones) of the Ayios Photios Group (Fig.
5); and, (c) metamorphic rocks (schists and marbles) of
the Ayia Varvara Group (these rocks were derived from the
metamorphism of the Dhiarizos Group.
The rocks of the Mamonia Zone have been intensely deformed and mixed with large fragments of the Troodos Ophiolite rocks.
